Over the past two weeks, I’ve written a handful of posts over at Harpyness and of course my colleagues haven’t been slackers either. To recap:
- Fluidity of Desire: Unfinished Thoughts on How We Measure Libido (2011-04-13). In which I rant about poor science, poor science reporting, and data that makes us feel like crap about our bodies and our sexuality.
- Paying Taxes [Money Matters] (2011-04-13). In which I ask readers to report back from the field concerning what they are glad their taxes are paying for (hint: top nominations include libraries, schools, and public parks).
- Marathon Monday: Remembering 1967’s Historic First (2011-04-18). In which I share the story of Kathrine Switzer, first woman to register and run in the Boston Marathon … five years before women were officially allowed to enter the race.
- Why We Make It Personal: More Thoughts About Talking Sex (2011-04-21). In which I return to the topic of sex and muse on why it’s so hard for us to read and reflect on cultural narratives about sex without feeling our personal experience is being invalidated by others who hold differing opinions.
